Abdullah Al-Saffah was the first of the Abbasid caliphs. He assumed power at the age of twenty-six and was the nineteenth caliph of the Muslim caliphs. Abu al-Abbas al-Saffah assumed his caliphate after eliminating all the influence of the Umayyads in the Islamic state. He was stern with his opponents, and most of his rulers were from his uncles and cousins. His caliphate only lasted four years, as he died in 136 AH (720 AD) of smallpox in Anbar.  

Dinar 132 AH was the first Abbasid Dinar and was inscribed in the simple Kufic script. Caliph Abdullah al-Saffah kept the round shape of the dinar as he inherited it from his predecessors, the Umayyad caliphs. He did change the wording on the Dinar replacing ‘God is one , God ,the Ethernal, who did not give birth and was not born’ ( Allah Ahad, Allah Al- Samad, Lam yalid wa lam youlad) with ‘Muhammad is the Messenger of God’.  ( Mohammed Rassoul Allah) 

The Dinar had a thickness of approximately 1 mm and a legal weight around 4,24 grams of pure 24-carat gold.  The weight may vary a gram, due to the minting molds. 

This Dinar is classified as scarce and rare, because not many were made. The political dynamics of that time made the striking of the coin irregular. 

It is in very good condition.
